ILLEGALS die committing illegal acts
Crossing the border illegally is a crime. It is a choice made by individuals. Stealing is a crime. Rape is a crime. If you choose to do something illegal, there are ALWAYS consequences. Moral consequences, ethical, criminal. If people are going to enter this country illegally and they die, well, what do you suggest? A chauffeur driven limo paid for by AMERICAN tax dollars? GET A LIFE, fool.
